Not your typical vegas wedding I suppose…
Palm trees aren’t as common in Utah. Glad I get to travel so much!
Nice blue skies with cool clouds!… wonderful for these kinds of shots!
It’s a bit easier with good looking models.
Here’s one of the scenes that I was specially proud of from recent trips
It was about 1 degree outside (not counting windchill) and I was heading out of town back to St. Louis that morning.
So like many of the pictures you’ll see in these upcoming posts I wasn’t about to get out of the car. But i set my settings skidded to a stop on the 1 inch of ice on the road and backed up and pulled forward to get the perfect pics
THIS IS A LONG BLOG POST - Just so you know
My job at church (calling) is to be the photographer.
How chill is that?? Per’ Darn – is the answer.
Yeah sure it’s tons of work in comparison to other things… but it’s no different than what I do every other day.
I’ve had this calling starting back in 2005 in 3 different wards! In the 3 places i’ve lived… since that first time.
I don’t take quite as many as I did when i lived in my previous house… but still all my friends at church get hooked up with some great pictures at the activities I show up with a camera.
SOME/MANY EXAMPLES FROM RECENT ACTIVITIES
I figure if I put posts before i get around to posting picture
I’ll get around to filling them up sooner than if not.
But at least I can put up the link to their gallery online.
(Which I always do quite quickly)
UPDATE: Here’s a picture
Apparently it’s one of their favorites.
I liked it… but I was unsure what their reaction would be.
The lambson wedding was in Salt Lake City and the Reception on the mountainside of Provo.
Believe it or not it was actually my first outdoor reception
I guess it’s not a common thing around here in Utah.
But I really really liked it.
It was all very picturesque… even though it becomes near impossible to take great pictures toward the late part of the evening.
But some of them at sunset and dusk are awesome and pleasently moody.
I’ll be doing a few more this summer and I’m looking forward to each one of them… though I doubt any of them come close in terms of amazing views.
(You could see the whole valley from the lawn!)
That being said until I get the time to post some of the pictures you can find some here:
Lambson Wedding Pictures
I couldn’t figure out how to organize them like I usually do (the first few pictures are supposed to be of the happy couple)
I should re-upload them now that I know how to do it in this new release of Lightroom.
BTW Sam Lambson knows how to do web-programming and we actually bartered in exchange for his wedding pictures.
Programming time = wedding pictures
I would offer that same deal to any web-programmer out there… I always have projects in mind.
In fact I prefer Programming to Money…. hands down!!!
It was a cold snowy day but we got done things pretty fast and kept all our limbs in-tact.
They had an Open house in the Logan area and a reception in Provo
There are plenty of pictures in Full Color
However I enjoyed most of the pictures in B&W and DuoTones
Pictures from the most recent wedding at the South Jordan LDS Temple.
Harsh sun gave the bride a sunburn and provided some harsh shadows but it also provided a beautiful blue sky and striking clouds and I dealt with the shadows with a strong flash and some fancy editing.
